Can anybody recommend a decent (and reasonably priced) chain breaker tool? I’m looking for one that can handle 8, 10 and 11 speed chains. The one I have the press bin bent, looking for a work horse that I can use time and again without it breaking / bending.
Thanks, 8-)

Buy cheap buy twice springs to mind on chain tool.
Look for one with large twist handle.

Some multi tools have a chain tool but most not very good.

Look at X-Tools Pro Chain Rivet Extractor or large Park Tool blue handle.

Not a tool you use every day but once got.

Edit: just looked at price of Park Tool well expensive! And lot bad reviews on pin bending.

My b twin one from decathlon was a tenner and seems pretty robust. not sure if it does 11 speed but something makes me think it does.

Went for a park tools CT3.2 - does up to 12 speed and feels like a nice bit of kit plus you can buy spare press pins. I'll report back after using it

I have one of these, bought originally for the backpack but good enough for home use

Got and used the Park Tools CT3.2. Nice bit of kit, seems tough and solid. Pin is fine and glad it can be replaced if needed. Not overly cheap at £25 but not too bad.
